Tempo Seelster, a colt from the first crop of Santanna Blue Chip, was one of two winners for trainer Carl Jamieson during this morning's baby races at Mohawk. Riina Rekila also had two victors among the half-dozen races for two-year-olds.
Tempo Seelster obtained the front for Jody Jamieson by the 1:01.3 half and won by a length in 2:00 over stablemate Traumatized (Western Terror). The sixth foal from $623,000 winner The Patriot, Tempo Seelster is owned by Carl Jamieson, George Harrison and Tom Kyron.
An Art Major filly, Belle Boyd, provided the other Jamieson stable victory as she paced to a three length 1:59.4 effort over Lark Seelster (Santanna Blue Chip). A $90,000 yearling purchase at last year's Lexington Select Sale, Belle Boyd is owned by Carl, Kyron and Joanne Morrison.
Rekila's first winner was the Muscle Mass filly Massive Babe who was home first in 2:05.2 over Lady Genevieve (Cornaro Dasolo). Owner Juho Ihamuotila was in the bike behind the filly who is the first foal of the Andover Hall daughter Andover Babe.
Rekila drove her other winner on the card, the Cadillac Hall daughter Katla who was home with six lengths to spare in 2:03.1. Pedroia (Pegasus Spur) was second. Rekila's Overseas Farms of Campbellville owns the homebred, a half-sister to $218,000 winner Lakefield.
The fastest performer this morning was the Rambaran colt Glammit who gave Mike Saftic a 1:59.2 ride. TV analyst Dawn Lupul of Rockwood bred and owns the colt trained by Larry Micallef.
The other winner this morning was the cutely named Jan It Jackson, a filly by Badlands Hanover who was home with a neck to spare in 2:00.4 over Mary Celeste (Your Nemesis). A $29,000 yearling purchase at last year's Canadian Open, the filly is a half-sister to $370,000 winner Machal Jackson. Trainer Isaac Waxman shares ownership with Brenda Selwyn Waxman.
